(PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    Slipping Into The Slip Dress Trend



    PS: Can my post title be more original?

    I've been wanting to try out this trend for monthsssssss, guyslook at how many 'S' I used there, because it really has been the case for months and months. I've done the layering-dress-over-top look before but doing it with a slip dress is a different game altogether.       

    The tricky part, as a hijabi, was finding the right slip dress that's decent enough, so I put myself on a slip-dress prowl; I wanted one that has a neckline low enough that it can be seen below the lines of my hijab, yet a neckline that appears modest at the same time. (PS: Low + Modest = legitimately the trickiest part)     

    Plus, the dress has to have enough room that it doesn't cling to every curve of my body (especially the curves of my food-baby bump, which isn't that cute, so here's a golden tip: clutches help!).



      I don't think this particular dress is The One but it's definitely the closest one. Instead of layering over a plain tee, I went with this sporty-chic top with bold leopard-print patterns that has bright red and teal hues, just perfect for my belated birthday dinner with Shah!
      Note: We went to a Swiss restaurant in Bukit Damansara that serves raclette cheeseee which was also basically the only reason we went there.



        How do you guys feel about the slip dress layering trend?

              I'm confused by the top you've chosen as your underlying layer. I think I'd prefer something that is all one print or solid color. It's hard to tell where the dress stops and your top starts. Then again maybe this very feature makes the outfit cool! I get that too.
              Your shoes are sooooo darling!! They pick up the colors in your oufit so well. I also like the red hijab!

              1. I purposely chose this top and not a plain tee because of its big black V-shape strip that almost blends into the dress actually! I didn't even intend for the green and red to peek out from the top neckline of the dress - I sort of wanted people to think the whole thing was a dress and double take when they realise it's not, but I couldn't pull the top lower or hitch the dress higher, so this is what I got!
                Initially I planned on wearing an all-white sneakers but sooo glad I went with those teal ones in the end! Red is my favourite colour, by the way =D
